A Virtual Evening with Yi Won, Marci Calabretta Cancio-Bello & E.J. Koh
Event Date: January 21, 2022 7:00 pm
Books & Books and Miami Book Fair present Yi Won, Marci Calabretta Cancio-Bello & E.J. Koh discussing “The World’s Lightest Motorcycle.” A successor to Korean feminist poets like Kim Hyesoon, Yi Won frequently writes about the perilousness of maintaining one’s human identity in a high-tech, digital environment. In this debut book in English, her poems range from avant-garde prose poems to more lyrical, if dark, free verse, as she examines isolation, death, and the passage of time — and in the process, upends polite society and Korean literary culture.
